The oral history of the Inuit people is the inspiration for Unikkaaqtuat, a multidisciplinary work that combines the traditional practices of throat-singing, hunting and competitive games with circus arts. The 7 Fingers of Montreal joins forces with Artcirq of Igloolik, and Taqqut Productions of Iqaluit engaging Inuit and non-Inuit musicians and performers in a unique collaborative process.
Featuring illustrations from celebrated artist Germaine Arnaktauyok, Unikkaaqtuat bridges ancient traditions and contemporary forms through sound, image, and story. DanceHouse is extremely proud to partner with The Cultch to co-present this astounding new production fresh from its recent world premiere in late 2019.
“Brilliant, wildly creative…What sets The 7 Fingers apart from other…theatrical circus companies is they do contemporary circus on a human scale.” – Mooney on Theatre
